    RGB Globe

    I sometimes wonder why there isn't 2 boards in these designs... both with double sided leds all slightly off of each other so there's less of a "line" pattern in the spin. The extra components required can be put in the center area.
  2. Yeah, because in that code you are storing both in RAM. If you use const then you would be storing them in FLASH. You can use const to store them in flash and then load them into ram, or just reference them in flash.
  3. Yep... installer just crashes out everytime. "An unhandled win32 exception occurred in TI-CMSIS-Devices-8636.exe [4804].", loading the failure in a debugger results with: "Unhandled exception at 0x772b15de in TI-CMSIS-Devices-8636.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x0066928a." Run it in compatibility mode for XP SP3. It now runs fine.
  4. You could do this yourself... custom filter in the top bar of any forum. Sort by Replies Ascending.. Although it would be nicer as a content filter of posts with 0 replies sorted by date...
  5. Or you wait for TI to have another $1 deal on CCS. I've got both 4 and 5 licensed. $2. I can't even count all the dev boards I have anymore... I had to clean them off my desk so I could play with something yesterday.. The code limit really sucks when you need to go beyond it.
  6. You have to run at 3.3v? If you find some near this price that work at 3.3v... that would be cool... 5v doesn't bother me as most things I find run 5v anyways...
  7. Wish they would fix that stupid sidebar float.
  8. ebay and amazon are pretty given, like shopping at newegg or tigerdirect... and Radio Shack never carries 1/100th of the things I need. Like the one here... only has 1 inductor, a large RF choke. I would consider them to be a last minute must-have-more-solder type place than a component store... I have yet to look at the components at Fry's... it's too far to drive.
  9. This is why I source most of my parts from major suppliers, always get exactly what I order, if it's wrong it's my fault.
  10. I'll update this post with responses... we had one of these at 43oh, figured I'd start another here as we probably have some new folks If you don't know of TI's estore...

    More of you should hang with, or at least sometimes join, us in IRC. Just sayin'.
  12. They are probably both 68uH but different current maximums, would be my guess.
  13. Yes. I use tapatalk with Stellarisiti and C2KCentral, works fine.
  14. ow duck that hurt... yes... the 34063 gets HOT
  15. Does that mean I go and use forum pilot to download all the forums, just in case? :-x
  16. Sweet! Touch menu system and control, totally adding this to my bar light project.
  17. I had a bad jumper wire on the 5v... *doh*... put another one on there and it worked... past tense. I saw "startup", looked up at the computer, looked back... smoke and now not lighting up again. Can't tell where the smoke came from visibly...
  18. Mine looks like that... but it doesn't light up
